What we do
Wiltshire Treehouse offers advice and creative programmes that support the social and emotional well-being of bereaved children and young people. We offer a relaxed, safe and inclusive environment in which people can explore and grow to understand their grief. At Wiltshire Treehouse children can meet others, share stories, make a connection and help each other.
Advice & information
We can provide advice, guidance and reassurance to children, young people, parents & carers. We can do this over the phone, or in person.
Family Programme - for 6-11yr olds
The Family Programme (formerly CHYPS) is specially designed for bereaved families. By using practical activities the programme provides children and members of their family the opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings together, and alongside other families.

Other face to face support
In exceptional circumstances we can arrange for children and young people to be supported on a 1 to 1 basis.
Sadly we cannot provide:
- immediate help to people in crisis
- help before someone has died, for example if someone has received a terminal diagnosis
